OnePlus is all set to launch the OnePlus Ace in China on April 21. Ahead of the official launch, the phone has made an appearance in the official live stream. Screenshots of the OnePlus Ace from the livestream indicate that the phone will launch on April 24, which is likely to be when the phone will go on sale in the country.
Screenshots (via GSM Arena) also indicate that OnePlus is running a pre-reservation program. Benefits of this pre-reservation program include a Bluetooth speaker and subscription to a video platform. Also, there could be a starting price for interested buyers who pre-reserve the upcoming OnePlus Ace smartphone.
It is worth noting that the images from the livestream reveal the design of the rear panel of the phone – something that OnePlus has already shared in the teaser images via its official Weibo handle. It does not show the display of the phone.
However, a separate video shared by a Twitter user, known as Technology Edge on the platform, gives us a 360-degree view of the phone. The video reveals that the upcoming OnePlus Ace smartphone will come with a punch-hole display that will be placed at the top in the middle of the screen. The 15-second long video also reveals that the phone will have a power button on the right and volume rocker on the left, which is in line with the official images shared by the company. Meanwhile, the official images of the OnePlus Ace reveal that the phone will feature a speaker grille, USB-C charging port and SIM card tray on the bottom and a 3.5mm jack on top.
